The X-Men will be assembling at Marvel as of this Thursday!
According to a new report by CNBC who first broke the news, the Disney and Fox Studios announcement will be made this Thursday.
It’s said Comcast recently dropped out of competing with Disney to purchase Fox Studios, which has left Disney as the lone bidder.
The deal is estimated to be worth upwards of $60 million, and sees Disney acquire the Fox’s movie and TV studio, which includes the X-Men, Wolverine, Deadpool and related characters.
It’s currently not clear what will happen to the Fantastic Four.
The deal also has to get the approval of the Justice Department who recently filed suit to block AT&T purchasing Time Warner, so it still remains to be seen when and if Disney will end up able to purchase Fox.
Assuming everything goes smoothly, we could actually see X-Men characters in the Marvel movies relatively soon.
Hugh Jackman is even rumored for Avengers 4!
I’m actually more excited to see the Silver Surfer and Galactus in the MCU. Now that would make a great Avengers 5 movie!
